SO im having problems in wich games behave strange,my pc frezes,restarts,shuts down then cant bot up,and a weird problem in wich when i OC my gfx the scren goes black everything shuts down then the screen apears saying the nvidia display driver has stoped working and something about the kernel but it isnt the heat since my temps never go beyond 55C when playing games like RAGE Metro 2033 and such so i tried the nvidia 285.68 and the 290 beta and both dont work but i need to back up and tell a short story you se one day i forgot to set the fans on my gfx and the vram temps were 103C but just for 3 min and then i imediatly cooled it down but since then all the problems have started ocuring first games start to lag but difrently some lag in some the npcs lag and after that i got the problem where my pc shuts down and cant bot up then the restarts and now finaly frezes so im doubting my psu or gfx or maybe the psu damaged the gfx or the other way around i dont know so now im downloading the 280 driver and if that doesnt work then i know its a component thing so my questions are the folowing and please answer in order
1.If you could recomend the best driver and most stable one for my gfx
2.Is this a compability issue but i did a loot of research and the i5 2500k doesnt support 1.65v ram but everyone says its fine any my ram is curently on 1.4v and 1333mhz since the mobo set it automaticly so is it something else
3.Is it posible that after the 103C thing that the gfx is damaged and is now causing all these problems since when the scren goes black its actualy just the gfx that shuts down and then i need to restart sometimes i dont
4.Or is it the psu or some other component nut all of the parts are good i did A LOT of research and even the psu got golden adn editors choice rewards actualy all the component did
Any way im just hoping its not an incompability issue since i can have any part RMAD from the store where i bought them i already had a faulty hdd and they replaced it within a week so if you have any answers please reply and thank you
1. have you tried 295.xx beta driver family? for those who does not like being beta 'tester' for nvidia will stay with their latest WHQL. but for me i don't mind using the beta drivers because so far it works just fine for all games that i played. so if you don't mind being beta 'tester' then try the latest one if not just get their latest WHQL
2. i think no problem here but have you tried to set the voltage to 1.5v?
3. it could be. did the problem starts after you overclock the card? or did it happen prior to that as well?
4. it does not matter what kind award it gets but if you got yourself a faulty one it will still perform badly.
1.No but im downloading it and if this driver fails the one you mentioned will be the last if even that driver fails i will know that i has there has to be a problem with the graphics card
2.Thank god incompability is the only thing i cant fix (for free) no but if you think it will help il set the ram to 1.5
3.Yes that ocured after the 103C and the shut down and cant bot up problem and it hapens difrently like when i oc my gfx to 1ghz while playing rage nothing but when i oc it beyond 980 while on stalker clear sky also when playing metro if i set it to 1ghz i get the black scren graphics card shut down and then i need to restart the pc but if it helps my gfx default voltage is 187v and i thought that that means i got a good one
4.but all the components exept the hdd havent been touched and they worked fine for a couple of weeks and still do exept the gfx or the psu i dont know maybe the gfx or the psu somehow did even more damage but i just remebered the oc and black screen actualy hapend before everthing becouse when i got my pc the first game i played was metro 2033 and it ran fine on stock but when i oc it to 1ghz i would get the gfx shut down and black scren but then the screan reapered and the gfx started working so maybe it was the psu that did in the gfx anyway thanks for your answer and reply if you can
